Hi,

I start the campaign with the amphibious BRDM-1, from Moscow's Eastern Express, not Peking's Trumpeter. Hope to complete it.



Regards,
K.

Alright boys, I'm off and running with the following Tamiya kit. I'm really looking forward to build this, maybe because it's armor and not a main battle tank.

Regardless, being built out of the box, and I may, strong maybe at best, might add the legend stowage kit.









Thanks for looking, and sorry for the crappy lighting on the last picture.

Yep, all participants are encouraged to upload their progress pictures to the gallery, so our campaign could be shared with the entire community.


I normally only upload a finished picture to the gallery as im out of space and have to delete old pics for new ones so i post my progress in the tread
Got the lower Hull complete starting to think I should have used this Kit in the 500+ Campaign

I just wanted to have the first picture for a "this is where we started" kind of thing. I thought it would be nice to see how from a small mess of parts out came a wonderful model.

You're welcome John.

No need to wait till you finish your build. Do post your in-progress pics here in the campaign thread. As in all campaigns, participants are encouraged such that experiences may be shared, critiques / feedback given, all in the spirit of having a good, fun build.

Once you decide your build is done, put a pic or two in the campaign gallery so you get the ribbon by the end of the campaign

Cheers,

Tat

Tat,
Thanks for the reply. You were correct about me not being logged onto the Kitmaker Gallery. Earlier when I went to the Kitmaker campaign gallery I had the "Welcome Yellowhammer" statement so I thought I was signed in there as well. Live and learn. I was able to post my start photo but based on your comment, should we wait for the final photos for posting?
Thanks
John

Hey Guys,
Nathan has asked us to post our start photos in the campaign gallery. I'm a newb when it comes to uploading photos to campaign galleries. I searched the site for how-tos. The search gave me all sorts of links to various build blogs but I didn't find a blog on how to upload to campaign galleries. I went to the campaign gallery page and hit the upload photo button but it took me to my home gallery folder. I went to the campaign page but didn't see any info or links for uploading the photos. I started another topic to ask for help. I've received one reply so far from Damien who recommended I make sure I was logged onto the campaign page and make sure the size of the photo meets requirements. I was logged in on Armorama and Kitmaker. I don't see another log in option when I'm on the Armorama campaign page or the Kitmaker campaign gallery page. I'm enlisted on the campaign page. Am I missing something?
The photo is 600x800 pixels, 236 kb so the size should not be a problem.

I've noticed no one else in the campaign has posted any photos to the gallery either. Could this be a technical issue. Can some of you experienced folks tell me where I've gone wrong?

Thanks
John



John,

I just uploaded the below pic in the campaign gallery:



The gallery link for the Best of Both Worlds

I'm guessing you may not be logged-on to the KM Gallery. From my experience here, you may be logged-on to Armorama but not necessarily with KM Gallery.

I take cue whenever I see the word Login on the upper right hand of the KM Gallery page. If otherwise then it means you're good to go, and you can start uploading pics.

No pics posted on the campaign gallery? -- I believe no one has completed a build as yet. In-progress pics are typically posted in the campaign thread itself.

Cheers,

Tat

Hey Doc, check out the Archer decal set for the DUKW. There is some great stuff there in the way of warning lettering to place on various parts of the vehicle and operational plaques for the cockpit!

Hi guys,
Finally getting a chance to start the campaign. Here's the moldy oldie I'll be doing. The Monogram M29c Weasel. This is the 1972 boxing with the Shep Payne Diorama Hints included. The decals are sealed in the bag with the parts so maybe they will be useable.



I'm mainly an OOB builder but maybe this will bring back a few memories.
Thanks
John

My Trakz LVT2 resin conversion arrived this week so I pulled the Italeri LVT4 from the stash to begin the back dating. This will be an early unarmored cab version of the LVT4. The specific vehicle I am modeling is a vehicle from 3D Landing Vehicle Tractor Battalion that landed on Iwo Jima in Feb ’45. To show off the work on the cab and the interior I will not be adding the cab’s add-on armor plating. I am also including a Verlinden resin interior. The basic OOB hull went together quickly; this hull was warped less than the previous kits I assembled. I am still finagling proper fit of the forward glacis, causing more headache than I anticipated. I also sawed away the armor plates from the sponsons as they are too thick and the vehicle I am modeling does not appear to have them. The second picture is the LVT4 positioned along my P7 hybrid build, the 1940s LVT looks like a monster alongside the 1970s LVT.

That looks really nice. I finally got a new camera, so will post some progress a bit later. Both models arrived well and sound, and because I got a nice deal on them, I'll be able to splash in the AM pool though the selection for these two models is poor. There's a track set I will get from masterclub and try looking for a place that has th pt76 PE in stock.

Hull assembled, top just sitting there for the meantime. Eduard didn't call out for the kit side meshes to be removed, but I did it anyway, and installed tiny lugs to support the PE mesh. Don't worry, this isn't some kinda freaky camo scheme- just shot some primer onto the filled drainage holes to see where I needed to sand!
Also made the steering posed as if turning, and added a ring of copper wire to the transmission boot as there was a bit of a gap there.
Getting ready for the real fiddly bits now!

For my build, I had intended building an AAV. albeit being somewhat an obvious choice, I had wanted to build it for a long time, until...

Couple of months ago an IDF amphibious unit was declassified. The unit was comprised of pt76 and btr50, and was supposed to be an amphibious bridge head in any collision with Egyptian forces that required the crossing of the suez channel.

The existence of such unit was probably known already (as the vehicles are on display at Latron), but the name was revealed - Dov Lavan, or "white bear". So as an homage to the official declassification, I'm going to build 2 models, a PT76 and BTR50, and hopefully put them in a small diorama.

Everything is still in the mail, so I don't have any pictures yet. The base kits will be trumpeter's, and am will be decided when they arrive. I will also need some diorama water supplies

Some progress -
had a wee accident with a bottle of Tamiya cement on the stern, port side. Luckily it hasn't done too much damage and should be easily rectified. Also had a couple of drops of solvent on the engine hatch - one xylene, the other acetone - was experimenting with thinning Mr Surfacer which I have just acquired for the first time. You would have thought after the first accident I would have learned to get the the good parts out of the way first!
